Can E- Cigarettes Replace Cigarettes?
For a long time, people have been arguing that whether e-cigarettes are better than the traditional cigarettes, there are several sounds about this: some people said e-cigarettes is better than cigarettes, but some people hold the opposite view, and there are some other people think the two of them are the same. Today, a survey will tell you the result.
Many health benefits are reported by e-cigarette users, according to a new study published today inInternational Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The study was a worldwide survey, with a questionnaire available in 10 different languages, to assess the experience, patterns of use, side effect and benefits observed by more than 19,000 e-cigarette consumers.
The study found that those who completely substituted smoking were more likely to experience health benefits compared to dual users. “This is an expected finding”, said Dr Farsalinos. “E-cigarettes do not have therapeutic properties, but using them instead of tobacco is definitely expected to result in substantial health benefits. This is supported from all research performed until now on the safety profile of e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes were effective smoking substitutes even with those with high-dependence on smoking; Switching from cigarettes to e-cigarettes has significant health benefits. However, we should wait for long-term follow-up studies to define the overall health impact of e-cigarette use.”
From the survey, it cannot say decisively that e-cigarettes can replace cigarettes, but it cannot be denied that e-cigarettes are better than cigarettes, at least for the health benefits. More studies are on the way, we will provide you the newest and authoritative news to you.
